CONCLUSIONS: This study confirmed a high prevalence of pollen allergy among German athletes. The majority of allergic rhinitis athletes were undertreated and the reason could be their reservations about allergy treatments. Pollen allergy tremendously reduced sports performance of athletes during the pollen season. This impact can be lessened with proper treatment such as immunotherapy. Better understanding of available treatment modalities should be provided to patients and physicians to improve sports performance of athletes suffering from pollen allergy.

The globulin is a hexamer consisting of subunits containing basic and acidic polypeptides. Multiple acidic polypeptides have long been demonstrated to be allergens for humans and play a key role in the overall allergenicity of Gly m 6. To date, knowledge on the allergenicity of the acidic polypeptides for piglets is very limi...

AbstractAllergic diseases are inflammatory disorders that involve many types of cells and factors, including allergens, immunoglobulin (Ig)E, mast cells, basophils, cytokines and soluble mediators. Among them, IgE plays a vital role in the development of acute allergic reactions and chronic inflammatory allergic diseases, making its control particularly important in the treatment of IgE-mediated allergic diseases. This review provides an overview of the current state of IgE targeted therapy development, focusing on three areas of translational research: IgE neutralization in blood; IgE-effector cell elimination; and IgE+ B...

The incidence of allergic contact dermatitis to PPD is increasing, particularly in younger patients. In this article, we review the main sources of PPD and the substances with which it can interact and present a practical algorithm for diagnosing and treating suspected cases of PPD allergy.ResumenLa parafenilendiamina (PPD)...

A β-lactam allergy is the most common suspected in-hospital drug allergy, with an incidence of 5 to 17% in hospitalized patients and up to 35% in the surgical population at the preoperative assessment clinic.1 –5 Thus, the team in the operating theater will be confronted with these patients when perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis is needed. Frequently, the consequence of a presumed β-lactam allergy is that all β-lactam antibiotics are avoided, because of the possibility of cross-reactivity, and an alternative antibiotic,e.g., clindamycin, vancomycin, or ciprofloxacin, is prescribed.1 This may be a sh...
